...Near Critical Fire Weather Conditions today...
Strong south winds combined with low afternoon humidities will
create areas of concern with respect to fire growth. Dry fuels,
especially where snow melted more than a couple days ago, combined
with the aforementioned weather conditions will create a short
period of time for heightened awareness of wild fire potential.
